- 9janimi channel launches new mobile apps
- The online music streaming site promises to pay artists' royalty promptly
- It also promises to fight piracy
In line with the digital revolution in the music industry worldwide popular music streaming service 9janimi Channel has beefed up its services with trendy features. This is to meet up with the growing demand for online music content.
The online music streaming channel has been described as an alternative to popular streaming services. With its new management; the platform lets independent artists keep 75% of the proceeds through its Fair Trade Streaming agreement. The new website and mobile apps has been positioned as a more competitive and user friendly platform
Speaking to Legit.ng Soltesh Iyere who is the founder of the platform said: “The Media 360 Company, owners of 9janimi Channel, originally projected the streaming service as an alternative to the music industry through which they could directly distribute their music to music fans and lovers. 9janimi Channel offers two tiers for customers, streaming on the Web and on iOS and Android. It has become necessary to provide better services for our teeming subscribers.”
Explaining why it suspended its activities before now, Iyere said:
“We needed to suspend our activities for a while to bring our subscribers and new users this mobile friendly platform. It is our desire to help the Nigerian government bring piracy to its knees and this is one of the ways we are contributing to the music industry. With our new platform, subscribers are assured of their privacy along with so many other exciting features we are bringing.”
He eplained that the streaming service was originally announced about a year ago, after a couple of years of being operated a music channel, but for some reasons it was delayed and now a streaming service has risen to pay artists royalties.
“It’s not clear yet how large 9janimi Channel’s music catalogue is, or how well it will do, though it’s sure to resonate with artists who are finding the models used by others. 9ijanimi had promised to pay royalties to artistes.” Iyere added.
